Halloween Safety Tips
Although many have now turned to the carnivals and trunk-or-treat events, there are still kids who enjoy the thrill of going door-to-door for trick-or-treating. If you’re planning an evening out with your family on October 31, here are a few safety tips to remember.
· Make sure your child’s costume has some type of reflective lighting on it and it doesn’t drag the ground.
· If a mask blocks too much of your child’s eyesight, consider non-toxic make-up instead. Be sure to test make-up ahead of time to ensure your child doesn’t have any type of reaction.
· When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories take a moment to read the labels to ensure they are flame resistant.
· Some costumes come with a sword, cane or some type of stick. Have your child practice walking with the stick and make sure they don’t run with it. A child could easily hurt themselves if they stumble or trip.
· If you plan to stay home and greet trick-or-treaters, make sure your yard and porch is clear of items that a child could tip on such as garden hoses, toys, bikes or lawn decorations.
· Make sure your front porch light is working and turned on.
· Keep your pets inside or crated to help reduce their stress.
